What is ELC?
Offering customized leadership and personal development strategies for PAs, ELC will help you identify the leadership competencies necessary to succeed in a variety of healthcare settings. You will acquire management skills that can be directly and immediately applied to your role as a leader in your organization.
Why should I attend?
We’ve specifically designed ELC for PA leaders and clinical administrators. See what past attendees have said about this engaging and informative conference:

“Thank you. This conference was the place I needed to be with my new position.”
“Excellent, one of the best conferences I have been to.”
“I really enjoyed the conference. I felt like I could take back something from every topic to bring back to my job/role.”
What will I learn?
During the course, you will:
- Explore relevant content, no matter your healthcare setting
- Experience faculty and content across various disciplines – but always with the focus on the PA as the primary learner
- Develop your management skills in areas of workforce metrics, employment law, finance, negotiation strategies, and leadership competencies
- Network with a broad group of PA administrators, from those who are just starting out to seasoned professionals
- Learn how to utilize your strengths to become a more effective leader
